Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind

Sir Anthony is not at all happy to be asked to escort his grandmother's niece to her home in the country. He remembers Ginny from former years, all skinny and full of annoying opinions. Yet, his grandmother is firm, Sir Anthony must escort Ginny to her country home to check on her roses. Ginny and Sir Anthony start out, but all kinds of annoying things happen. First Ginny's maid becomes increasingly sick, so they stop to care for her at an inn along the way, the inn happens to be the most disgusting one there is between Grandmama's city home and her country home. At this inn, Ginny is first accosted by and then their carriage is stolen by two greasy looking men. It's comical how many bad things happen to Ginny and Sir Anthony on the way to the country, and it doesn't stop there! Ginny and Sir Anthony end up quarantined in the home of one of Grandmama's most annoying neighbor's, whose daughter, Lucinda, only wants scandal and romance. It's a recipe for disaster, but can Ginny and Sir Anthony learn to work together enough to avert the disaster that's coming their way?

This was a fun, cute book! The romance is clean. The plot did tend to move a bit slow for me, but the characters and the zany situations the characters were in made up for the plot. It was clean, which is always a good thing! Overall, I enjoyed this book, and would enjoy reading more books by Heidi Ashworth.

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
